This landscape is filled with differing greens and browns. The center foreground is filled with moss-covered rocks with the stream running over them. A large tree is on the left with hanging linear branches. The stream sits in the middle and veers to the left behind the large, uprooted trees. Tall, thin trees fill the background on the shore to the right. The water reflects the over-hanging branches. Thick texture is on the greenery on the leaves, the water falling over the mossy rocks, and the roots of the large tree.
